The U.S. Department of Energy announced $137 million in funding for 80 projects in high energy physics. The funding will support research projects on muon and neutrino science, quantum mechanics of black holes, dark matter and Fermilab’s Short Baseline Neutrino program, including the ICARUS experiment.

Fermilab’s Silvia Zorzetti has been awarded the prestigious Early Career Award from the U.S. DOE for her pioneering research in developing technology that will lay the foundations of the quantum internet. The project’s goal is to improve quantum sensors and sensor networks, so as to allow a more efficient conversion of information and quantum signals between different physical platforms
